 +4) No Root Squash:
 +There are many options for NFS and I want to keep this article short but effective so I am leaving out many of the various configuration items that you could do. However there is one option that is worth mentioning, **no_root_squash**. By default NFS will downgrade any files created with the root permissions to the nobody user. This is a security feature that prevents privileges from being shared unless specifically requested.
 +If I create a file as the root user on the client on the NFS share, by default that file is owned by the nobody user.
 +<​code>​
 + ​root@client:​~#​ touch /​shared/​nfs1/​file2 ​
 + ​root@server:/​nfs#​ ls -la file2
 + ​-rw-r--r-- 1 nobody nogroup 0 Nov 18 18:06 file2
 +</​code>​
 +Sometimes it is important to share files that are owned as root with the proper permissions,​ in these cases this can be done by simply adding the **no_root_squash** attribute to the **/​etc/​exports** configuration.
